June 18, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Twenty-one eager players will sit down at three tables in the Las Vegas Rio Casino this afternoon with their sights set on winning the Event 30, $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament. At stake will be one of the coveted World Series of Poker bracelets and a prize pool that climbed to $3,231,900, thanks to a field of 2,394 runners.

This huge event has not only generated a large overall purse, but excellent individual amounts as well. The remaining twenty-one players are assured of a minimum payday of $16,644, with the top ten places paying out as follows:

Tenth Place:              $33,191

Ninth Place:              $42,790

Eighth Place:                        $55,814

Seventh Place:         $73,719

Sixth Place:               $98,605

Fifth Place:                $133,574

Fourth Place:            $183,345

Third Place:               $254,996

Second Place:          $360,906

First Place:                $581,851

The final day’s activities will start at 3:00pm Las Vegas time, with play starting at Level 20. The blinds will start at 6,000/12,000 and the antes will be 1,000. The blinds and antes will become a factor for the players as they continue to climb, meaning that those remaining will have to plan a strategy to avoid getting overwhelmed as they rise.

Christopher Gonzales leads the remaining players as they battle to set the final table and crown a winner. Gonzales bagged 1.3 million chips at the end of play yesterday, well above the average stack of 513,000. The leader’s finish in Day Two has surely raised his hopes for a run to the title today, which comes against a remaining field of players that is a largely unknown group.
